This is another quick and simple way to practice spellings. My class get great enjoyment from it.
After you have finished practicing your spellings for the night, whip out my Scrambled Eggs Handout. In the “Scrambled Egg” column your child writes his/her spellings back-to-front or completely mixed up. Then put the sheet away for tomorrow evening. Start your spelling practice by having your child figure out the scrambled up words from yesterday and writing them in the Un-scrambled section. Alternatively, you could scramble the words for your child to decode.
What do you think? Let me know if your child/class enjoyed this game. I just love getting comments!!!

I love all the cute worksheets you provide on your blog! What kind of program/software do you use to create them? I would love to start making some of my own.
Thank you so much for your kind comment! I create all my worksheets in Microsoft Word. I love messing around with fonts and page boarders to make them look as cute as possible. I have bought a few fonts and some clip art from DJ Inkers. DJ Inkers is hard to beat for clip art. Check out http://www.kevinandamanda.com/fonts/ for the best free fonts around! It takes a bit of sifting through to find ones that are suitable for little kids ( eg suitably shaped letters, g, k, and i in particular).
I hope that this helps! If you have any more questions I would only be delighted to help.

I’m impressed how beautiful you make your work with just Microsoft Word! Thanks for the font and clip art suggestions!
